Denver's two year run as NCAA hockey champs has ended. They were upset by Minnesota Duluth in a three game opening round WCHA series. Denver's record will not be good enough to earn them a bid to the national tournament. Tough way to end the season, but Denver had too many injuries and inconsistent play. Denver has a very good freshmen class coming in next year and if Matt Carle returns, they will be good enough to make a run next season.
P.S. CC was also eliminated from the WCHA playoffs. Their pairwise ranking is better then Denver's but they were tied for 10th going into tonight and may lose out due to tie brakers. We shall see.
P.S.S. Yo Pierre...sign the kid in my avatar!
